If there is one thing iMac lacks, it would be USB ports, which you can easily resolve by using a USB hub. Even if you have enough, assuming you don’t have as many USB-powered gadgets, the ports located at the back also poses access issue. This is where Satechi Aluminum Clamp USB Hub can help. As the product name implies, it stands out from the horde of USB hubs by letting you attach it to your iMac or any PC that’s of one inch or less, thereby routing the ports to the front for easy access and/or increase the number of ports at your disposal – all while not cluttering up your desk. Attaching something that’s non-Apple in nature may not appeal to some, but Satechi has made an effort to blend the Aluminum Clamp with your aluminum iMac by giving it a metallic brushed aluminum exterior, accented with white trim, so it will look just right at home on any 2012 or newer iMac. Though we can’t say the same for the predominantly black PC machines.
The ports provides are of USB 3.0, which means it supports up to 5.0Gbps transfer rate and each hub comes with an integrated blue LED light for power status indication. Nothing fancy here. It is just one of those simple and yet functional accessories that aims to make life a little easier and in this case, less the clutter. You can pick one up from Amazon for $29.99, excluding shipping, of course.
